2nd pastor resigns over gay sex scandal

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The founding pastor of a second Colorado church has resigned over gay sex allegations, just weeks after the evangelical community was shaken by the scandal surrounding megachurch leader Ted Haggard.

On Sunday, Paul Barnes, founding pastor of the 2,100-member Grace Chapel in this Denver suburb, told his evangelical congregation in a videotaped message he had had sexual relations with other men and was stepping down.

    The pastor said “I have struggled with homosexuality since I was a 5-year-old boy. … I can’t tell you the number of nights I have cried myself to sleep, begging God to take this away.”

    That’s sad. I wish he knew the loving God that I know.

    How very sad.

    What is the disconnect in reasoning when people believe that God is the creator but they don’t allow themselves to be what/who he created?

    And the hits just keep on coming.

    What does this say about the “we’ve got it figured out” Christians in leadership throughout the Church. WILL SOMEBODY STAND UP AND JUST ADMIT THEY ARE FU#@ED UP!

    I’ll follow that guy!
